Wonder what you would find if you frisked the deeper meaning behind the New England Patriots’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the NFL playoffs?
Answer: A win for Scott Brown (R) in Massachusetts’s special Senate election.
Props to KJ Kaufman and Constitutional Government for this interesting perspective:
The New England Patriots, and the team winning, means everything to those who live in Massachusetts. Last year, they had the excuse of Tom Brady being injured. The year before that, their team made it to the Super Bowl in an undefeated regular season that saw them lose to the New York Giants in a thrilling game. Now, however, there is no excuse of last year of Brady being injured, and the fine citizens of Massachusetts expected their Patriots to be a contender in these 2010 playoffs and to make it to the big dance once again. A loss in the first round of the playoffs to the Baltimore Ravens (a team curiously housed close to the cesspool in D.C.) is devastating. As if it weren’t bad enough that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim swept their Boston Red Sox, now the New England Patriots get beat by the Baltimore Ravens – unacceptable, completely unacceptable. The world has obviously been turned upside down.
It is this alternate reality that the Massachusetts sports fan now lives in, and it is this psyche that will take Scott Brown all the way to the U.S. Senate. If the New England Patriots would have won today, like they always do in the playoffs, then it would be just another normal year in 2010. A loss, however, confirms for the New England sports fan that nothing has been normal since Obama took office. Up is down, wins are losses and now left is right. How else would one explain the spanking suffered in the playoffs by both the Red Sox and the Patriots? Hey Patriots fans, something to think about. Ted Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama on January 28, 2008. Just one week later, your Patriots lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl ending their run at perfection and another championship. Coincidence, I think not. The only thing for New Englanders to do is take matters into their own hands and change the makeup in Washington D.C. which has obviously caused the successes of both the football and baseball teams in the first decade of this new millennium to completely collapse since Kennedy endorsed Obama and subsequently the “One” won the election and took office.
Although the election will be close unlike the football game, the depression that has set upon New England can only be solved by dramatic change. And that change can only take place if Scott Brown is sent to the United States Senate. I know it’s crazy to think Massachusetts would send a Republican to our nation’s capital, but it is equally crazy that the Boston Red Sox would be swept in the ALDS and now the New England Patriots would lose in the first round of the NFL playoffs. The only solution is to shake up Washington D.C. removing the stranglehold the Democrats have on our politics which obviously translates to our sports.
HAHA! Now that is what I call excellent sports and political analysis. Let’s hope it’s true! At least he has the support of some former New England Patriots’ players:
